Imam Maturidi, the famous Turkish qalam scholar and jurist, played an important role in the penetration of Islam into the Turks of the Central Asia and its adoption as a religion with its full purity. Maturidi did not assume any active political posit in his homeland Samarkand or in the neighboring states or emirates. However, he made statements directly or indirectly relating to fundamental principles which ensure co-habitation of people and state in unity, peace and security in terms of relations between state and religion. This study examines such statements.
